Re: any one local Lee on solent / fareham got poptop & awning channel pls?

No problem. I can't see it would be to much difference on a T5. Depends what rail you use. I believe the funky leisure one will sit in your gutter same as mine. Saturday morning is good to see mine. Let me know.

Can also recommend Titchfield Motor Works mate. Always been honest and very reliable and have worked on my Van and my Mk2 Golf

Anyone know the most favourable main stealer that will not jerk me around on a pain warranty? I've been to Breeze in Southampton and got stonewalled on a 18 month old van with a few spots of rust coming through (which on a white van looks horrid). Willing to travel anywhere from Poole to Portsmouth.

If anybody is looking at having their wheels refurbished or having a colour change then I can recommend Auto Wheels in Droxford.

Recently had a set of X5 alloys powder coated gloss black with a quick turnaround and a fair price.

Van converters in a North Hampshire

Hi, new to the forum and live in Basingstoke.

I have a T5 that I have started converting in the past 8 months

It would be good to chat to others and share advice on which garages etc to use locally

I can highly recommend

Simon Howard commercial (Bisley) where I bought my van

Streamline (Wolverhampton) For beds/ seats upholstery

Autobarn(Basingstoke) everything mechanical

I need to find someone who can do leisure battery/system fittings next !

Bit of a thread resurrection, but there is a one in Portsmouth that opened last autumn, I used them for a few things, in the last month of my warranty and they were good. Got a caddy as courtesy car but sure you could get a transporter with a bit of notice.
There were keen to build a rep and customer base. Rust spots on a vehicle that age is terrible, can't believe they fobbed you off.
Good luck.

Hey Guys,

I'm after a little bit of work done on my van.... I've hit a stumbling block, I get shifted around the country regularly and have not been in one place long enough (the same place as the tools!) to finish the lining.

I'm after a bit of help ply lining the roof of my van and cutting some holes for my LED's and switches... it's max about 2 hours worth of work so the job is too small for a busy firm to take it on. Any takers? or any recommendations?

Also if my knight in shining armour is confident enough I'm looking to probably get all the electrics installed at a later date! T:

Hi mate happy to give you a hand. I'm a carpenter/bodybuilder based in south east hants, probably 40 mins from odiham. Give me a pm is best I guess.

Same goes for everybody else here, happy to give free advice and quotes for anything wood related, floors, furniture, linings etc.
Just starting out on the van conversion journey myself, had some windows fitted and am going to do some trims in walnut or ash, will post some pics as soon as I can. :)
